hurricane sandy could impact the upcoming presidential election, but isn't slowing last-minute efforts to get votes in swing states. there will be several rallies in ohio. and the president travels to florida. we go live to washington with the roundup. hey, molly. >> reporter: yes, the president will leave tonight, fly to florida, do a campaign event in florida tomorrow and fly back to d.c. to monitor the storm. because of sandy, the president has cancelled a stop in virginia tomorrow and one in colorado for tuesday. the white house says president obama is getting regular updates on the storm and said the federal emergency management agency, fema, has already deployed teams and pre-staged resources to potentially affected states and fema is in close contact with states up and down the east coast, to make sure there are no unmet needs. one concern for both campaigns is that the storm could hinder early voting in ohio, north carolina and virginia. one democratic senator said this about the impact on the president's campaign. >> the storm will throw havoc into the race. i was supposed to
are headed to the polls right now. and the other election on november 6 that could immediately change your life. but first, the one simple word that may determine the whole thi thing. good morning, i'm melissa harris perry. first thing this morning, want to give everyone an update on the latest on the path of hurricane sandy. the storm is expected to bring life threatening conditions to the east coast. high wind watches and warnings are in effect for portions of the mid-atlantic states as well as much of new england. the center of sandy will move parallel to the southeast coast of the u.s. today and will approach land tomorrow night. both the romney and obama campaigns have canceled scheduled events already due to sandy. so if you're in an affected area, stay inside, stay off the roads and stay tuned into msnbc. all right. now, let's turn to the final countdown. i wanted to sing that but i don't have a very good singing voice. but we're in the final days and we can all agree that the way a political candidate runs a race is important, but how a candidate closes the deal is crucial. and wit
on the economy right before the election are not encouraging for the president. good morning, everyone. do you want gas? in the new york area, you will have to wait for hours, you want power? millions will wait for days, but it's the supply of gas that is today's crisis. driving to work will be almost impossible for millions. piled on top of the mass power outage, the whole nation's economy will surely take a hit. new numbers today, paint a grim picture on employment and it's a snapshot of the economy which remains weak. the latest fox news poll shows a dead heat and the candidates are tied five days to the election. we are we go. another big day. "varney & company" is about to begin. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td amer
, the political election coming up. >> eric: sure. it's the obvious question. a huge storm, master storm, both president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campa
will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar workers the president is doing better than he might have done otherwise without the auto bailout. what was fascinating four years ago when you visited where i am, you knew at this time the race was over because the president then-senator obama was doing so well here. look at our poll numbers here from cincinnati and the southwest part of the state. governor romney ahead 52% to 47% in a region that is absolutely essential to republicans if they are to win a close statewide election here. we visited both campaign hea
this as evidence that voters should elect them on tuesday. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs. today we learned companies hired war in october. >> he said he would lower the unemployment rate. today we learned it is 7.9%. that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. rich: president obama's -- the romney campaign has featured bankruptcy with the government providing guarantees proposed financing. ohio could very well decide this race. president obama returned tomorrow. governor romney later this weekend. david: thank you very much. let's bring in our panel. liz: we have jeff cleveland and fill -- the action you saw today, didn't say anything about what we may see next week and review a little perplexed? >> we sell gold and silver get liquidated. they thought that qe maybe a little shorter and its duration. as the day went on, we sell oil prices continue to decline. we sell gold and silver break down harder. that put a lot of pressure on the margin situation. liz: we need to show a gold chart. gold pl
presentation. >> tur bucks, now, neil cavuto. >> neil: it's on the final election three days away and anger and frustration continue to mount over that response to sandy. today, it's the tale of two remarkable lines. this one for folks just looking to fill up, as the shortage of gas for the northeast leads to rationing and a lot more. and these lines, folks lining up for early voting in florida. some waiting for four hours to vote. so far more than 25 million americans cast ballots in 34 states and we're with louisiana residential governor bobby jindal shall the storm after the storm. jack welch on the d.c. storm. and charlie rangel on the government's stormy response to sandy and how it reverberates. and first the very latest what's going on. forget the dollars, it's sandy thing is turning dire, very dire, over 100 dead now with the count expected to go higher as rescue workers finally reach the flooded homes and no less than michael bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found. and president obama fema headquarters this morning, holding a conference call with the governors of new york,
away from a presidential election. and there are some literally logistical issues with that. but bill karins was watching this morning, and you said something that really rang true. three days after a disaster is when the novelty wears off, when it really starts to hurt. bill. >> yeah. i've been going through these the last 15 years of my career, and this is the end of the glow. everyone's all together. it's a novelty. you're getting through it. if you did approval ratings of all the governors in the affected areas, they'd be sky high. this is it. from here, the anger and frustration begins to build from my experience going through these events. once you get to day three and four, all the food in your house is now gone. the gasoline crisis is going to continue. and your generator, if you have one, you can't even get gas for it. it's all of a sudden, it's cold out, too. you have to find somewhere to live. and then the cruelty of who gets power when. maybe your neighbor gets it and you don't. of course, the hospitals will get it first, the schools will get it, the police and fire statio
order to move it to this weekend. he joked that it might be fun to recalifornia it for election day. >> brian: last year was cancelled because of the ice storm and brought a lot of power and lights down. it is important to know that two million people are without power and it is dangerous driving conditions. you don't want them to the streets. >> steve: from wind and rain to snow. blizzard continues to several states including west virginia virge and north carolina . think it is too early to get the ice scraper out. this picture from kentucky. maria molina. it went from a hurricane to a brrrocane. it produced blizzard conditions in many states not only kentucky, but west virginia, maryland and north carolina and virginia and tennessee. one place in each state recordding 20 inches of snow. two feet in virginia and maryland. incredible to see these conditions. we had blizzard warnings in affect. they have been allowed to expire. we are seeing it come down in states of west virginia and north carolina again. it is incredible. the rainfall was a big concern. that is letting up and seein
with the election? very latest from the campaign trail. melissa: and we want to get you up to speed on the very latest on the storm aftermath. frustration is mounting. residents are outraged saying they have been ignored while aid goes to other parts of new york and new jersey, the desperation really mounting and the national guard is on the ground finally in staten island surveying the damage. lori: look at these long lines, people waiting for gasoline. new reports that people are siphoning fuel and even just giving up leaving their cars at the stations. melissa: hundreds of homes have been destroyed but the city is still planning to run the annual marathon. that kicks off on sunday. lori: we're waiting for comments from new york city mayor michael bloomberg expected to speak momentarily. the mayor is beating to speak, let's listen. >> an update on the city's recovery from sandy as of this moment. i went to some of the areas in south brooklyn hit hardest by the storm. i did talk to some homeowners, went inside some of their houses and some had been severely damaged by sandy. the homeowners are
helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virginia as the president rallies in wisconsin and nevada and colorado, a sign that both campaigns are moving full steam ahead toward tuesday after slowing down in sandy's aftermath. back to you . >> steve: five-days
to an election, but this isn't a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. these car companies are putting a lot of effort to make great products, but also to make sure that everybody in america knows how committed they are to making cars here in america. so you don't scare hard work and americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. that's not leadership. when i first made the decision to rescue the auto industry, i knew it wasn't popular. and despite the fact that one out of eight jobs in ohio are connected to the auto industry in some way, it wasn't even popular here in ohio. but i knew it was the right thing to do. i knew betting on american workers was the right thing to do. i knew betting on america was the right thing to do. that paid off. it paid off where gm is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in their auto plant. it paid off in toledo where chrysler is adding more than 1,000 new jobs on a second shift. not in china, but right here in ohio. right here in the united states of america. and so one of the things, when you're t
focusing on canceling events. one week to go until the election day. connell: we have an update coming up shortly from governor andrew coumo of new york. the national hurricane center releasing the latest update on hurricane sandy. dagen: we are with our chief forecaster from weather.com. the storm is working its way in. reporter: is weakening pretty quickly. but it is really following apart fast. the next 24 to 36 hours, the major weather event from this is falling snow. now we have to deal with the cleanup operation. sandy is a storm that is long overdue. we have been overdue on the eastern seaboard, because we are in a cycle that the east coast should get hit. again, i have been stressing this. people that follow me over the years know that i have always wondered why we have never seen a storm that comes between bermuda into the mid-atlantic states. if you look at other areas, you have seen storms turn that way out there. so if you want to look at the storm as far as historic perspective goes, the lowest pressure on tremper metric pressure we have ever had. secondly, the storm surge is
now. nine days to the election, hurricane sandy upsetting campaign schedules today. president obama is canceling stops in virginia on monday and colorado on tuesday. he will return to the white house to monitor hurricane sandy. mitt romney joins running mate paul ryan in ohio for a bus tour across that state. and on "meet the press," two states, virginia and colorado, seen as holding the key to the election. >> $2 trillion to tand promisinx cuts without any specifics, right? trying to sell a pig in a poke. >> i believe we are currently ahead. internals show us currently ahead. i think romney will carry ohio, and, you know, i haven't been saying this. i know believe it's going to happen. >> a new "washington post" poll shows the race in virginia is getting closer. president obama leads mitt romney by four points. 51% to 47%. president obama, a nod from "the new york times," the paper's editorial board is endorsing him for a second term. and mitt romney, another endorsement of his own. "the des moines register" supporting the republican nominee for president. joining me now, deputy po
on tuesday, it will take until wednesday noon for the conspiracy theories to start about how the election was stolen. we all have a responsibility not to live permanently on the grassy knoll. host: ryan in springfield, tennessee, republican. caller: can you hear me? host: we are listening. caller: the congressional races, there are four of them in virginia. all three of them are republicansi who picked up democrats. i want to hear him talk about those four races. i believe republicans will hold those three but i think frank could in the future go to a democrat, his seat. i think frank connolly will hold on. i wonder if he thinks there will be a couple of upsets in senate races too? shelly berkeley will defeat her opponent in nevada and i think todd akin will be the winner in his race. host: is this a hobby of yours to follow politics? caller: yes. guest: i'm happy to answer a fellow hobbyists. it becomes your vocation if you let. in virginia, i can simplify the current situation for you. all the incumbents are going to win. they have done a marvelous job working with the state legislature
at it overall and stark politics it's a short-term benefit to the president. by election day, people will make whatever decision they're going to make, obviously hime hoping for governor romney. president obama's doing what he has to do. it's important for the country. >> thank you so much. thanks for what you're doing for all of your folks and good luck to you. >> thank you. >> in the district. airports are shut down by hurricane sandy but beginning to resume operations slowly. this morning, laguardia airport, completely flooded during the storm, reopened limited service office jfk and newark opened. tom kos tell la made his way to laguardia overnight. what are you seeing there? >> reporter: this is the good news. actual -- we've got passengers. we've got people pulling up to the curbs and importantly planes on the ramps. we were here with the first plane landed here at laguardia. two runways here running and operational. delta planes here, american, air tran p so the big players are moving in. us airways hoping they can get up and running tomorrow. it's a truncated schedule today. it's not a
today, both he and mitt romney have a hectic pace planned in the last days before this election. it is coming up in five days. again, we are awaiting for the start of the president's first campaign event since he canceled all stops ahead of the storm. the next few days are going to find the president hitting key battle ground and hitting them hard. we have wisconsin, nevada, colorado, ohio, florida, and new hampshire. romney with fewer stops planned to so far. the governor planning in virginia, wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, and colorado as well. we want to bring in thursday's power panel. guys, it's good to have you here. alice, i want to start with you governor romney, as we mentioned, speaking moments ago. he wasn't holding back on his criticisms of the president. take a listen. >> he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea next week, which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs. >> now that he's back officially o
report before the presidential election. it shows 358,000 americans filing for first time jobless benefits. that is drop of just 9000. take a look back so you can keep it into perspective there is look since the start of the recession. we have little change since january when weekly jobless claims dropped to 360,000. tomorrow we get the last big monthly jobs report as the october number comes in. let's bring in fox business network stuart varney for a look at this. good mornings, stuart. what lies ahead? >> that is a difficult question to answer. looking at the numbers we received today from a couple of reports you can probably say tomorrow 8:30 eastern time there were roughly, 120,000 new jobs created last month. that is a very rough estimate looking at today's numbers. now let me go into today's numbers, they are politically loaded because they present a snapshot of the economy right before the election. they're going to be intensely scrutinized because we've had a couple of very generous and pretty surprisingly positive reports last month. 363,000 new filings for unemployment b
to recover. >> five days until the election. both kaesdz on the road in the final battleground states. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. we begin with the latest on the aftermath of the superstorm hurricane ire hurricane sandy. most buses are up and running again and they are free of charge. but most of lower manhattan still has no power and temperatures are dipping into the 30s and 40s. >> and there are no heartbreaking picture as long the jersey shore barrier islands. houses picked up, some just buried in the sand and governor chris christie who toured the destruction with president obama said some parts of the shore may never look the same again. >> the death toll reached 124 people with 56 in the united states. at least 28 in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our coun

[ applause ] >> reporter: on sunday in ohio mitt romney and paul ryan took a break from their campaign message to talk about hurricane sandy barreling toward the east coast. >>

jobs report of the year. this is the final report before the presidential election on tuesday. it shows the economy added 171,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%. here's what president obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more
plans for this final week before the elections creating challenges for both sides. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. first of all, the president has been on a conference call with governors, with mayors from the affected area, in the white house, not campaigning. they've canceled their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used cl
the presidential election on tuesday. unemployment rising to 7.9% in october. joining us now scott minor, chief investment officer at guggenheim partners. what will make the job market pick up steam from here? isn't this lackluster growth that we will see in the months and maybe years? >> the hole that we are coming out of is buried deep. job growth is actually very good relative to prior expansions. the problem is it is not enough to make up for the site of the hole that we dug in the crisis. going forward, you know, actually, i hate to focus on sandy, but sandy probably will be good for job growth and economic activity. i think we will continue to see this trend of improving job growth in the months ahead. dagen: we talk about the rebuilding and construction work that go on after a storm like this. if you look at sandy right now and the aftermath and the fact you have the most populated area in the entire country, large swaths of it completely shut down, won't that show up in the growth figures negatively? >> you bring up a good question. i think it will distort the numbers for a number of mo

canceling appearances because of the storm. the impact it will have on the election that is just eight days away. good morning, everybody. we continue to track hurricane sandy. 90-mile per hour sustained winds. the storm still a category one, but it is so much more. connell: job astarte is all over it. it is so much more. you have been on it from the beginning. >> one of the things i have been advocating over the years is the power rating. if you do not find the real high winds and one small area, like we see in some of the storms like charlie, remember charlie, it will spread out, it will be a larger area of very strong wind and you will get the same net result as it hits land. what we have been saying at whether bell is when it took the turn to the northwest, we have been on this for the last five or six days i actually believe it is a bit stronger than what the hurricane center is saying. south of montauk, there have been wind gusts of 130 miles per hour. that would be close to what that barometric pressure is. that is now down as low as we have ever seen it. this is an extremely serious
the president has done an xlebt job. the disaster in his state bigger than this presidential election. here's what he said earlier this morning on fox news. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics, and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> hmm. all right, gloria. so he says he doesn't give a damn about politics. i know a lot of voters are watching very closely in terms of how a president handles this six days out from the election. it's a delicate balancing act. on the one hand we are going to see him touring the area, but he doesn't want to be seen giving photo opes, that kind of thing. needs to speak out and reassure the american pe
